Retro Sketches #150

Good morning crafty friends! Hope y'all are having a great week!
I wanted to share a card I made the other night following
the current sketch from Retro Sketches. When I saw the card that
design team member Arielle created I was so inspired by her
colors and papers that I sorta lifted her design. I hope she doesn't mind :-)
I used the same (or similar) background paper for mine, I think that's what
drew me to her card in the first place. The rest I made a little different.
I am also sharing this card over at Word Art Wednesday.



Enabler's List:

Paper: MME Lost and Found 2 with CTMH hollyhock, 
juniper, and white daisy cardstock
Stamps: Verve New Mercies
Ink: CTMH blush and chocolate
Misc: Recollections doily and ribbons, CTMH gold bling gems

Mojo Monday #378

Good morning crafty friends! Hope y'all had a great weekend!
I have certainly enjoyed my 4 day weekend even though my hubby
sick for part of it, including NYE. We just stayed in and
watched movies. I honestly didn't make it to midnight. I'm so used
to going to bed between 9 and 10 because I usually have to be
at work at 6ish that it's so hard to stay up past 11 even if I get to sleep in.

I wanted to share a card I made the other day following the
current sketch from Mojo Monday



Enabler's List:

Paper: Glitz Designs black and white, Paper studio (i love you and inside chevron),
CTMH ruby and white daisy cardstock
Stamps: Verve Love Notes
Ink: CTMH whisper, cranberry, and black
Misc; CTMH small sparkles

Heat Embossing Basics

Hi everyone! Hope y'all are having a great weekend! 
I have gotten into numerous conversations over the months 
about various card making techniques and decided it was time
to post a video. I haven't posted one in quite some time!
This video is the basics of heat embossing including all the items
you need to create beautiful effects on your stamped and digital images!

PS. Sorry everything is upside down, it was the other way on my phone
when I was recording but I guess it flipped when I uploaded it.
